This image is the direct result of the long CT winters. I do not like the cold so I get creative during the winter on my dinining room table. A flag, RainX, a water spray bottle and a piece of glass from a frame was used to create this image.

Veiled Cameleon | 16"x20" | Photography
My husband was worried that I had too many frogs, "no more frogs" he said as I left for a Reptile expo, so I came home with a chameleon. I lit this one from the side and back to get more dramatic lighting and to reveal texture.
